We have five words for Weezer: What took you so long?
While Kiss, Lynyrd Skynryd, John Mayer, and Kid Rock have all signed up for cruises for fans, Weezer is the only band that actually wrote a song titled "The Cruise," which seems oddly prescient now that the Sixthman cruises have announced that the Grammy-winning artists will take their show to the high seas on January 19-23, sailing from Miami to the island of Cozumel off the coast of Mexico.
There's so many of you, so many people I see
So many of you that I'd like to meet
There's so many things we could do
If you only knew
Jump with you, sleep with you, cheat on our soulmates and find
That some people care and some they don't mind
It don't matter we do what we do
As we break on through
And we sing
Out of tune
We are on the cruise [the cruise]
The trip, which is nothing so much as a seafaring festival, will also feature performances by Dinosaur Jr. Sebadoh, Gene Ween and Dave Dreiwitz and The Antlers and other utterly indie acts—in addition, former battling band mates J Mascis, Lou Barlow will turn in solo sets. The bands will perform over four stages located throughout the ship, with Weezer playing as the ship departs from Miami and then again at the ship's indoor theater. No, you can’t sit at Weezer’s table, but there will be opportunities to ask them what the "Sweater Song" was about during a Q& A session.
In addition to all that, there’s 24-hour room service, hot tubs, a casino, bingo, and complimentarily Dramamine.
